Florida Law relating to being sold a vehicle that is a "lemon"
There are a variety of state and federal laws that were created to protect you when you buy a used or new car. Auto dealership fraud can include unfair or deceptive practices, repossession and "buy here pay here" auto dealerships. These dealerships are the worst violators because they finance all their own sales, sell to high-risk clients for a big down payment and do financing themselves at a high interest rate. If and when a customer defaults, they come to repossess vehicles for his or her defaults.
When an Auto Dealer does not give you what you were promised.
Florida Law provides that auto dealers cannot:
- Make statements about the status of a vehicle without having the correct information to support the statements;
- Make representations about the general condition of a subject vehicle as having never been in an accident and being safe, reliable and dependable, without knowing them to be true and without knowledge of the material facts to support those representations;
- Represent orally or in writing that the subject vehicle had not sustained structural or substantial skin damage when such representations were not made in good faith and when the dealerts did not conduct an inspection to determine that such damage had not occurred; and
- Charge for a predelivery service fee without providing the exact statutory disclosure specifically required under this subsection printed on the Purchase Order (exhibit C) containing a line item for that predelivery service.
Some of the most common auto fraud violation includes:
- Auto Financing Fraud: This occurs when dealerships say financing is approved and later say it is not approved.
- Odometer Disclosure Fraud: This occurs when a client later trades in a car and the dealership says the car has more miles than what the original dealership said.
- Automotive Misrepresentation Fraud: This occurs when a salvaged car was in an accident, flood-damaged, involved in another incident and the dealer fails to disclose the information.
- Exploitation of Elderly (people over 60): This occurs when a dealership tries to charge them more for car after they've signed contract. The dealership tells the elderly person that he or she is co-signing a loan for someone, and the person later finds out he or she is only person on the loan. Essentially the dealership forces the elderly into a product they don't want by keeping them at a dealership all day and exhausting them into buying a car.
- Warranty Claim Fraud: In this case, you'll sign a warranty and they refuse to abide by warranty or make representations that the vehicle comes with a warranty. The consumer finds out later it doesn't have a warranty. They create extended service contracts and then never submit the contract after you sign it.
- False Advertisement: The vehicle in question does not have the options or price that was advertised.
